  1. If you can't agree about where to live you shouldn't marry each other. It seems it would be best for each of you to find someone who lives in the same country to marry.

    why do i go offline when composing a post?

    When you log in there is a box marked "Remember me." I believe that box needs to be checked to keep you from going offline.

    What is the Rapture?

    Chapters 2 and 3 consist of letters to seven churches. They obviously apply to the present age. Beginning in chapter 4 the church is never mentioned. Obviously this takes place after the chruch has been taken out of the world by the rapture.

    2 Corinthians 5:10 Judgement seat of Christ

    This judgment is at the beginning of his millennial reign. It takes place just after he returns to earth. The Millennium will begin with a world with only converted people in it. Those born during this time will start out with the same sinful natures we possess today and they will have to make a decision to repent of their sins and be saved. The fact that many will follow Satan when he is released at the end of the Millennium shows that many will not do this.

    Hey, That's Not Sincere Worship!

    How can you tell whether another person is sincere or not?

    Prayer Request.. For me.

    Does loyalty to Christ necessarily require loyalty to a specific denomination? What will you do if he leads you to serve in a church of a different denomination? I was baptized in a Southern Baptist church and for a long time I was loyal that denomination, but God led me to begin attending a church that wasn't Southern Baptist. Since then I have attended several churches but the only Southern Baptist church I have ever belonged to was the one where I was baptized.

    God’s hatred

    The Bible tells us that God is good. Because he is good he must hate sin and judge it.

    The false "god" of Islam

    Does this mean that Allah is really the devil?

    The unforgivable sin

    The unforgiveable sin is called blasphemy against the Holy Spirit. To understand what this means looke at the context in which it is spoken of. Jesus had been performing miracles by the power of the Spirit and the religious leaders accused him of casting out demons by the power of the prince of demons. They were speaking evil of the Spirit by calling him a demon. Other sins will remain unforgiven if they are not repented of but this sin cannot be forgiven.

    I'll bet you didn't know....

    The Millennium, the time when Christ will rule on earth, is mentioned many times in the Old Testament. Ezekiel 40 to 48 describes what the world will be like during this time. Revelation simply reveals how long this reign will last.

    The Paul and Barnabas dispute

    The Bible doesn't say who was right and who was wrong so I don't think we should. One result of the dispute was that two teams rather than one were sent out. Perhaps God allowed the disagreement to bring about this result.

    Not yet, but the land is withing the land promised to Abraham. The promise won't be completely fulfilled until Christ returns to begin his thousand year reign.

    What is the Rapture?

    The rapture will not be secret. Everyone will notice when all Christians are removed from the earth. It is the chaos which will be produced by this event that will enable the Antichrist to come to power.
